    As Mr. Ciaccio points out, it is really your treating physician that makes the causal connection between an accident and the claimed injury.

    Get the medical attention you require and consult with a NY personal injury attorney as soon as you can. As indicated, you will have to show that the hotel either created the dangerous condition or had notice of it. Your injury may be a developing story so a consultation with an attorney would be in order.

    Yes but vaulting the threshold will be difficult. There are many factors that must be considered in making such a determination. Your husband should get the medical attention he requires and should also consult with a qualified personal injury attorney in your area to discuss the viability of a claim.

    Pressure to do what, settle the case before you know the outcome of your rehab? Quite frankly it sounds as though a demand package was premature unless the coverage available is limited. I think a sit down with your attorney is in order.

    There is simply not enough information posted here to address the question. This is something you need to discuss with your attorney. If you trust his/her judgment and advice, then that should suffice. If not, then you have to re-evaluate your attorney/client relationship. No one here knows how your scars healed, if there is insurance coverage or the circumstances of the incident.

    A viable case is a question of both liability and damages. Even assuming malpractice was committed, it is too early to determine if your injury will justify the time and expense that a malpractice action entails. Get the treatment you need, then get your medical records an consult with an attorney in your area.

    If it is a NYCHA walkway or a NYC sidewalk, you have 90 days to file a notice of claim and one year and 90 days to commence your action. Do not attempt to go it alone. Get whatever medical treatment you require and see an attorney right away.

    As my colleagues indicate, the insurance company does not want to settle. There could be questions about how the accident happened or the extent of your injuries or both. Either way, litigation is the next step. Sit down with your attorney to discuss the process and what you can expect.

    Your first step should be to get necessary medical attention. Then put your insurance on notice of a a no fault claim and a possible uninsured claim. You need to contact an attorney in your area as soon as possible so that your rights and responsibilities can be explained.

    As my colleagues indicated, it depends on the type of petition and the nature of the error. If you are pro se and facing dismissal of an otherwise valid claim, you should consider engaging an attorney to clean up the potentially fatal errors.
